Infrared thermal asphalt patching reheats the existing asphalt with indirect heat. This process recycles and reuses the existing asphalt. We are proud to say that we were the first company in Wisconsin to utilize this environmentally friendly process. As the first company to use this innovative technology, our experienced crew will get the job done right the first time.
Infrared is an invisible wavelength that transfers heat. Our repair unit recycles the asphalt in place. The machine’s waves produce intense, infrared wavelengths that are directed towards the asphalt surface. When the asphalt heats 300 degrees, it can be reworked to allow new asphalt to be added. Then the surface is leveled and rolled using the infrared process.
We do not use direct flames; we only use indirect infrared units. At least three cubic feet of new asphalt will be spread uniformly on each 5 by 7-foot patch. A 1-ton vibrator roller is required to roll the leveled patch.
